Review Ohlone College
Good place to start if you want either career certificate or AA/AS degree, or save your tuition money and transfer to 4 year college after two years here. Academically not as strong as De Anza/Foothill College (it is the #1 community college in Ca.) which I attended before, but better than Chabot College or Lake Merritt or Las Positas in my opinion. Students tend to be lazier, non-interactive and closed than Las Positas students, though. No dorm rooms. Only worth going to if you live at home/live near school/take BART from nearby city but not worth it otherwise: traffic congestion, time spent, transp. cost, high cost of living in the area, plus some classes require attendance for more than one day per week make it a frustrating, time-wasting experience. 42 student clubs to choose from. Adjunct prof's and tenured prof's alike are passionate about teaching and will meet you outside of class hours. Some have other jobs besides teaching, though, and don't work as hard as other prof's do so good luck there, wouldn't wanna be ya :( Edible cafeteria food at both campuses at standard Mission District fast-food cost. Starbucks, B of A, across college/easy public bus access but heavily congested highways (680 nearby, 880 several miles) and takes up to 20 min. plus to just leave the school and drive for a mile down the street at peak hours in the am/late afternoons. Mission Peak hiking trail accessible from campus for hikers. Nice 5-story state-of-the-art parking bldg. at Fremont campus and newly built, adequate parking lot at Newark campus. Located in mostly clean, preppy neighborhood.
Some teachers are better than other, which comes with the territory but overall its a really good school. There's not a lot of African-American people which sucks but, now they have a program called "Umoja" that helps bring people of color together. It's a commuter school but the people are really live
I enjoyed my Psychology Class I took online. I would recommend Ohlone to those who want to expand their knowledge. Perhaps if you wish to challenge yourself, try to sign up for the more challenging classes. If you sign up for easier classes, it may not be as challenging if you want to push yourself academically.
